"Julia Messenger is Murder!"
“… the best vocal record ever to emerge from the Cologne electronic scene.”
"...She has an intriguing and unique approach, using her voice as an instrument and giving each song its full range of emotions, from a sweet lisping vulnerability to passionate longing to tempestuous rage to glory. "
"Messenger has a magnificent voice and gives it full range, her singing is note perfect and radiates nuance and power."
